The late night transport service is a centrally managed service provided for eligible staff in all Teams of the House. It provides transport from the Palace of Westminster to the home of a member of staff using shared taxis. The House will cover the cost of journeys home within a 25-mile radius of the Palace of Westminster.

The House provides the service for staff who finish late night duties at predictable times after the time the House rises and at unpredictable times (where workload determines finish times).

Staff on official duty or required to work after 11.00 pm are eligible to use the late night transport service.
